2021 ELT EXCELLENCE AWARDS


2020 ELT Excellence Awards supported by Burlington Books

Despite the general lock down last spring, state, private and foreign language schools submitted applications for almost all categories. Twenty four institutions made it to the final stage. Two gold, nineteen silver and three bronze awards were awarded. 

The Award ceremony, which had been scheduled for the end of August 2020, was cancelled due to covid-19 restriction measures. 

However the ELT community in Greece and Cyprus wants to know what the winners did during the previous school year, what methods applied, what resources they used and how their projects benefited their students.

We are happy to announce that the winners have gained the following awards:
